Baked Broccoli

 I've had a lot of posts with food crafts. Most of them are high in sugar, low in nutritional value. They are things you'd make for special occasions.

To balance that, here's a healthier idea. Baked broccoli. If you don't normally like broccoli, at least give this a try! There are lots of different spices you can add. The recipes below are just a start. Make up your own.



We tried it two different ways. 

First:
Raw broccoli rinsed. Allow time to dry. It doesn't cook well if it's wet.
Garlic cloves--however much you want. Your guess depending on your preference. After chopping real garlic cloves a few times, I started cheating and buying it in the jar. 
Salt 
Pepper
Olive oil -- 2T to 1/4 cup depending on how much broccoli you have

Put all ingredients in a large bag or bowl and shake.
Bake in a single layer on a cookie sheet at 400F for 15-20
minutes
You can shake it in a bag.

Or mix it in a bowl. This bowl has a lid, so we shook it.

Second:
Raw broccoli rinsed and dried
1/4 olive oil
1-2 t garlic powder or fresh garlic
2T brown sugar
1-2T lemon juice
1/2-1t cayenne pepper
salt 
pepper

Put all ingredients in a large bag or bowl and shake.
Bake in a single layer on a cookie sheet at 400F for 15-20
minutes

Anyone else have a baked broccoli recipe or any other healthy snack ideas?
